'Breaking Dawn' Countdown: 21 Days

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart

October 28, 2011:

Big news:
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart could already be married! Sort of.

'Breaking Dawn' Countdown: 21 DaysMr. Pattison joked at a press conference in Sweden this week (via Us magazine): "The wedding scene's funny because we used a real priest. So technically we are already married because he did all the things you would do in a normal ceremony. So we don't have a civil union in law, but I guess in the church we are actually married."

That's a big step for a couple who hasn't even confirmed they're a couple, right?

The actor has been in the headlines a lot this week, and opened up about the sex scenes with Kristen Stewart in British GQ. He said: "The sex scenes were difficult. The set was crazy and you have about 20 people in the room and someone saying things like: 'No, Bella would not have made that noise. Can we do it again?'"

He added: "It was very charged, but a very tender and sentimental scene. It's not a scene from the book, so everyone was nervous about doing it right. A ton of other people were nervous. And, Kristen and I were both worried about the shape of our bodies would look on camera. We felt vulnerable."
Ms. Stewart has also been candid 'Breaking Dawn' Countdown: 21 Daysabout the steamy scenes. "It was so weird, it didn't even feel like we were doing a scene within a Twilight film. I was like, 'Bella! What are you doing? Wow! What is happening here?!' It was very surreal," she said.

She has no problem opening up about their on-screen chemistry, but she's basically a closed book (still!) about the relationship between her and her co-star when the cameras aren't rolling. She chalks it up to wanting her privacy. "People can say whatever they want," she said, calling the interest "totally understandable. But when it's personal to you, it's like your life becomes a product, and I'm repelled by that. I don't like to give away gems that people are gonna be like, 'Oh my God!' So I'll always just shrug it off. In fact, I always find it kind of funny, and not just with Rob."

'Breaking Dawn' Countdown: 21 Days Ashley Greene (via Summit) In other epic Breaking Dawn news: There's a first glimpse of Ashley Greene's bridesmaid dress! She wears a purple dress with stripes and a fringed skirt as Alice Cullen. The actress said of the dress: (via “We wanted to have all the bridesmaids fit together and also have their own identity. So, we took a little bit of Alice’s past and put it into her dress.”

Guess what, Twihards: Breaking Dawn Part 1 is just over three weeks away from hitting the big screen. We expect you're getting your pillow and sleeping bag ready to camp out before the flick's November 18th premiere by now. While you're packing, check out this hot new clip of Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Bella (Kristen Stewart) on their first night as husband and wife. It's the latest snippet to be released from the film, and it's steamy.

The scene shows Edward carrying Bella over the threshold for their first night as newlyweds. It ends with the new bride asking for a few "human minutes" before they go swimming. "Don't take too long Mrs. Cullen," her hubby replies, in the sexiest vampire voice imaginable. Squeal!

'Breaking Dawn' Countdown: 21 DaysAnd that's not the only juicy tidbit to come out of the Twilight camp today. MTV also revealed that the couple, along with co-star Taylor Lautner, will be on hand during the network's "MTV First: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" special, airing November 3. Catch a never-before-released clip from the movie at 7:56pm ET (on the dot!) then the trio will stick around for a lengthy Q&A session. You can even submit your own video or text questions to via Twitter (using @MTVNews, plus the hashtags #AskTwilight and #MTVFirst)! Try not to cry/faint/giggle too much in your video questions.

Also: We all know Edward gets the girl in the end, but did you know Mr. Pattinson was self-conscious about his on-screen rivals abs while filming? Yep, Pattinson said in a recent interview (via New York mag): "You also have to worry about how you're going to look. I had never been so worried about that before, but after seeing how much Taylor works out for the movies, I thought, 'Well, everybody is really going to judge me now.' I always tried to think about positions where I could tense the muscles, and suck in my belly."

He added: "The body of the characters seem to be a big deal. So in this movie I thought, 'OK, it's the last one, I'm getting a six pack,' and I tried, but it's very hard. I worked out so hard for six months, so after filming the sex scene the first thing I thought was, 'Time to eat!'"

'Breaking Dawn' Countdown: 21 DaysPattinson certainly didn't have anything to be worried about at the Breaking Dawn event in Brussels this week, however. The star showed off his clean-shaven new look while promoting the flick with co-star Ashley Greene Wednesday.

The two walked the red carpet in their finest ensembles, just a few days after they did the same in Paris. Expect a lot more where this came from in the weeks to come...
